Ranking the Fourth and Fifth Waves of Nintendo Amiibos

If you collect Amiibos, you’re actually just collecting disappointment. Not that Nintendo’s toys are faulty or deficient, but the process of actually buying them seems almost hopeless. From trying to lodge an internet preorder before sites crash or figures sell out, to standing in line before stores open on release day, anybody trying to buy every Amiibo, or even just that one specific toy of an obscure favorite character, has grown intimately familiar with the darkest side of retail. We’re sorry, little buddy.

Perhaps it’s the fundamentally depressing nature of Amiibo collection that drove me to put off these latest rankings for so long. We last did this back in January, when the third wave first came out. With the sixth wave releasing earlier today, it’s time to finally catch up on all the exciting Amiibo action that went down throughout 2015. First up are the fourth wave, which came out in May, and the tiny fifth wave, which consists of two characters that were unleashed upon the world in July. As always, these rankings are based purely on aesthetic appeal, and are simply one man’s opinions. The most striking thing about these waves is that the figures are all really good, from an aesthetic standpoint. That makes the numbered rankings even more arbitrary than they’d otherwise be.
